CA - Andrew 'Andy' Moore, 26, San Diego, 8 September 2000
Fifteen years ago, Andrew Moore was found dead in his apartment in the downtown San Diego area. He had been murdered, his home ransacked and his motorcycle was stolen. The motorcycle was found a month later. Police recovered some physical evidence from the scene but not enough to make a DNA profile and the fingerprints lifted have failed to generate a match. A reward has been established as his parents continue to ask the community for information that will help solve their son's murder.
Nearly 15 Years Later, Family Seeks Answers for Son's Death
His family now lives in Pennsylvania, but flew in to San Diego to help ask for the public’s help for information in the case, which has been cold for more than a decade now.
“That’s why we’re here; we’re here to ask you to help us find out who did this to Andy so that we know why they did it,” his mother said. “That won’t bring Andy back but perhaps that it will lay our hearts to rest, why it happened.”

$56K Reward Offered in Unsolved Murder of San Diego City College Student
Nearly 17 years have passed since Moore’s murder; today, his killer remains at large. There is currently a $56,000 reward being offered for information leading to an arrest in this cold case: $1,000 from San Diego Crime Stoppers, $5,000 from the victim’s family and $50,000 from the Governor’s Office, officials confirmed on Friday.
His family established the Andrew Tan Tai Moore Scholarship at San Diego City College, which encourages applications from adoptees from Vietnam or other Asian countries, as well as any other re-entry students.
The parents, who lovingly refer to their son as "Andy," spoke to reporters about the San Diego City College scholarship. For their family, it's an important way to pay it forward and keep the memory of their son alive.
"We always look forward to that [presenting the scholarship]," said Rita. "And, every year, there’s a tinge of sadness to it, too, because we see them [the students] walk across that stage and we think, ‘That could’ve been Andy.’"Although many years have passed since their son was killed, Rita said the pain of losing him lingers.
"We've been reeling from this for 16-and-a-half years now," she said, holding back tears. "This is his birthday month. And so, it's strange how it always coincides that we're out here on Andy's birthday, celebrating -- but he's not here."
"We hope that someone out there who knows something about Andy's case will finally come forth and give us the information that we need, so that the police can solve his case," the victim's mother added. "We think Andy deserves justice. He's missed out on -- we can't begin to tell you how much he's missed out on, as our family grows. We miss him terribly."
Rita said she's confident justice will prevail someday.
